Long Way From Home Lyrics

by Ray Davies

You've come a long way
From the runny-nosed and scruffy kid I knew
You had such good ways
I can remember the little things
That always made you smile
They made you happy

Now you think you're wiser because you're older
And you think that money buys everything
And you think you need no one to guide you
But you're still a long way from home
Yes, you're still a long way from home

You've come a long way
You're self-assured and dressed in
Funny clothes but you don't know me
I hope that you find what you are looking for
With your car and your handmade overcoats

But your wealth will never make you stronger
'Cause you're still a long way from home
Yes, you're still a long way from home
Yes, you are a long way from home
